(ELNORA) - The Indiana State Police is investigating an early morning homicide one mile west of Elnora.

At 5:09 a.m. Saturday, a state trooper responded to a call of a traffic accident with injuries on County Road 300 East, approximately one quarter mile south of State Road 58.

While approaching the scene, the trooper was informed by two pedestrians that they saw a male with injuries walking south along CR 300E. The trooper drove south but was unable to locate a crash or the injured male.

After turning around and checking the area again, the trooper discovered 40-year-old Aaron Michael Byers of Elnora lying along the corn field on the west side of the roadway. Byers was unresponsive.

Emergency medical personnel and first responders arrived on scene; however, were not able to revive Byers. He was pronounced dead by the Daviess County Coroner.

Byers's vehicle had been driven through the cornfield and crashed into a tree line approximately one quarter mile southwest of where he was found.

State Police detectives and crime scene investigators gathered enough evidence to determine that the death was in fact a homicide and was not a result of the crash.

The official cause of death will be determined and released pending an autopsy.

The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Indiana State Police Post in Jasper by calling 1-812-482-1441.
